The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Lagos, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode today was the guest on a radio show “Eto Oselu” on Bond FM 92.9. He was there to discuss some of his programmes for Lagos.

Mr. Ambode echoed that his governorship intention is borne out of a selfless desire to serve and keep serving.

He stated that “I have served our dear state in different capacities for 27 years, both at the local government level and at Alausa. So, this present intention of mine to run for the post of the Governor of Lagos state is hinged on a desire to use the experience and expertise that I have gathered in my years of service to take our state to the next level”.While answering questions from the hosts and also from the listeners around Lagos, the vastly experienced governorship hopeful detailed his novel plans for job creation, urban standardization, rural urbanization, road construction, health, economic diversification, affordable housing, and welfare for the elderly and widows, among others.

“I will use my local government experience to empower our Community Development Councils (CDCs) in order to ensure rapid development of all the divisions in our state”, Ambode said.

He added, “There is also a set plan to create a 1 Billion Naira Lagos Employment Trust Fund for each Local government and Local Community development Area, which will make our youths have financial access to fund their entrepreneurial projects and also become employers of labour. This will solve the unemployment challenge and further broaden our economy”.

He urged the people to vote for the APC in the forthcoming elections, stating that “continuity is the best option for Lagos at the moment in order to keep on with the steady progress and development it has enjoyed in the past 15 years of democracy”.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate in Lagos, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, today joined the state’s Governor, Governor Babatunde Fashola in the commissioning of Solar-powered Panels built to enhance e-Learning at the Lagos State Model College, Meiran.

The Governor stated that the project is one many that proves that the APC’s government represents good governance aimed at bettering the lives of the people, both young and old.

“The government at the centre have failed in the provision of electricity and the fact that we have provided this solar panels proves that we outthink and outwork them”

Fashola then stated that a vote for the APC, that is, Akinwunmi Ambode in Lagos and then Buhari-Osinbajo at the Federal level will ensure continuity in the actualization of impactful governance.

Speaking at the event, Mr. Ambode said the creation of e-Learning in Lagos schools is the present mainstay of education, promising more of such from the APC government.

“I am vastly experienced in the affairs of good governance having worked in this productive democratic dispensation for the past 15 years, and what I am committed to is continuity of these good works in the next for 4 years”, Ambode said.

He reiterated Govenor Fashola’s view that “a vote for continuity and a rejection of “trial and error” will ensure that some other 172 public schools in Lagos also get the Solar panels and enhance their level of learning.
